* ''WesternAnimation/TheGreatRace'':
** The scene where [[spoiler:Sir Topham Hatt tells Thomas he can't take part in the Shunting Challenge due to his accident, and that Percy has to take his place. Sir Topham looks legitimately ''heartbroken'' during this scene, like a parent telling his ill child that he can't come on vacation with the rest of the family. It doesn't help that Percy is worried about competing, and Ashima coming in to say goodbye before they all leave for the Mainland. The scene ends with Thomas alone at the Steamworks looking miserable and heartbroken.]]

** It's no secret to the fandom that Emily is quite a BaseBreaker. However, when she came back to the sheds and found them completely full (as Duck was sleeping there for the time being), one can't help but feel sorry for her. And if that isn't enough, the next night, Duck is there again, and Henry takes up the last berth, leaving Emily outside again. Worst of all, ''no one else pays her any mind at all!'' Honestly, this was just taking the "Emily replaced Duck!" spiel too far.

* In "No Steam Without Coal", there's Timothy left upset over Bill and Ben's remarks about him being [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer no fun and is the odd one out]]. This can prove that the twin's teasing was taken too far.

** [[spoiler: But this is not the case. The rest of the episode turns into one long {{Heartwarming}} moment, as we learn that Percy, in fact, did hear Thomas' whistle, and was puffing on because he was in a hurry to get help! The message is passed from Percy to Harvey via a large number of other characters, all of whom are anxious to help their friend. Even more heartwarming because the helping characters include several others whom Thomas had spurned earlier.]]

* ''Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure'':
** Most of the scenes involving Thomas and the Fat Controller (whether directly or indirectly) feel this way, especially because this is the strictest he's acted in years. The worst one of all, though, is after [[spoiler: the dynamite scene, where the Fat Controller shouts at Thomas and sends him away, not having seen enough to know that Thomas was simply trying to save everyone from getting destroyed.]] It's a gut punch at its finest, because more often than not, his harsh words towards Thomas are mostly justified. His behavior towards Thomas also feels much more strict than towards the other engines this time around, which makes things feel worse still.
** Sailor John indirectly accusing Thomas of taking the treasure. Thomas' expression as the sailor rolls away in Skiff really seals it.
*** The worst part is that Sailor John and Skiff usually appeared not long after something happened to dishearten Thomas, and his mood improved quite a bit whenever he met with them. But now even that was taken from him...
